JERUSALEM — Israel’s intelligence agency says a Palestinian lured an Israeli soldier to a village in the West Bank and killed him.

The Shin Bet agency says the soldier’s body was found in a well early on Saturday a Palestinian village near the city of Qalqiliya in the northern West Bank.

The military says the soldier’s family has been notified.

The killing could deal a new blow to U.S.-led Mideast peace efforts, which resumed in July after a nearly five-year break.
